About Willowgrove

High quality park homes, perfectly located

Willowgrove Leisure Park and Fishery in Lancashire is a beautiful residential and holiday park designed specifically to match the lifestyle needs of semi-retired and retirement communities.

The park is conveniently located within walking distance from the picturesque villages of Preesall and Knott End-on-Sea on the Fylde Coast. It is the perfect place to buy a park home, and to join a retirement community of like-minded people who appreciate the traditional British way of life, all year round.

At Willowgrove, we hold a 52 week licence for holiday homes which make superb retirement properties. We offer one of the widest choices of modern luxury caravans, lakeside lodges and holiday lodges for sale in Lancashire, each with their own parking space and a dedicated BT landline. Residents also have full access to the park’s new on-site launderette, fitted with modern appliances.

The park is protected by a barrier and password system after 5.00pm, and the 24-hour warden adds an extra dimension of reassurance for owners. The community at Willowgrove in Lancashire can also call on the skills and expertise of our team – the park’s on-site trade professionals.

The pride of the park is a five-acre CEFAS registered fishing lake, a haven for wildlife and migrating birds. The lake is stocked with over 2,000 fish including carp, miracarp, tench and many other species, all of differing sizes and weight.


We have only been living here for 12 weeks, but when Kingfisher Drive is complete we will be moving over to near the lakeside. Coming from Leigh in Wigan we were in the centre of many different areas, so we decided to try a few different parks. The first ones we looked at weren’t residential, secure and were generally dirty.

During a trip to the hairdressers the women next to me having her hair done overheard my conversation about wanting to move to a residential park. She interrupted and told me she had recently moved to Willowgrove, and went on to tell me how much she loved it.  So, the next day we arranged to go for a viewing. We pulled up to a gated entrance which is exactly what we both wanted. After driving through the gates, it was just like going into ‘heaven’. My husband and I both immediately fell in love, and we knew this was the place we wanted to be. Greg made the process of selling our home and switching over to a park home so relaxing and put us at ease. All the staff on the park are so helpful and friendly. Everywhere is spotless and it is so peaceful, as it is a residential park.

Our bricks and mortar house made my husband quite poorly and ever since moving to our park home it has made him loads better. We are more relaxed and just love living at Willowgrove.

Just the other day someone asked me how I liked living at Willowgrove Leisure Park & Fishery and if I missed my cottage. All I could reply was how happy we were with the decision we made seven years ago.

Ron and I did not take this kind of move lightly, we researched parks in the West Country and in the North. We decided on Willowgrove because of the many things which they had to offer.

First of all Willowgrove is located in a village, close to all the major facilities you could ever wish for. Our park has a management team that takes care of the lake, grounds and any problems you may have with your home. My husband and I always feel comfortable going away knowing our home is safe and well taken care of with their security team.

I would recommend our park to anyone who is thinking of a lifestyle change and wants a happy retirement.

One of the best decisions we have ever made was to come and live on Willowgrove Leisure Park and Fishery in Preesall, Lancashire. We saw numerous sites offering this way of life but nowhere offered the quality and standards of Willowgrove.

From the electronic barrier entry, to the street lighting, the on-site workforce and facilities available, the park offers everything you would want from a community without being ‘in your face’ about it. Everyone is so friendly… we have never had so many people, staff and residents, enquiring if we’ve settled in and admiring our fledgling garden – a job we managed to fit in around moving in! The beautiful lake and wonderful wildlife make for a very pleasant and quiet area to sit and fish or just enjoy.

All in all, it’s a ‘no brainer’ choosing Willowgrove.

Having lost my husband after a long illness the future seemed bleak and I felt very lonely. As I knew Willowgrove and had a friend who lives there, I made some enquiries and within a few weeks I was living in a Park Home myself. I feel happy and secure now and know that help is at hand if I have a problem. Everyone is so friendly and I feel as if I have joined a family. My own family are so impressed and say that when they retire a Park Home is where they will be going.

Our home has been a real gem of a find for us. Everyone, without exception, made us feel instantly part of the community and each neighbour personally welcomed us. It is so pleasant to be part of this small retirement community of like-minded people with everyone having the same interest in keeping the park looking its best… and it does, no matter what the season. It is also very relaxing to live in such beautiful surroundings.
